Thinking Of You Butterfly


Hi, today i have a card to share with you that uses the free stamp, die and embossing folder that comes with this months Papercraft Essentials Magazine Issue 170.
I started by cutting a piece of white card to measure 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches. I then used some masking tape to mask off the edges. I then inked the background using 'Cracked Pistachio' and 'Peeled Paint' Distress Oxide. Then after removing the masking tape I embossed the panel, which also cut out the butterfly aperture at the same time. I then used the Green Distress Oxides along with 'Worn Lipstick' to paint the details of the embossing folder. I also added some splatters of Pearl Starlight Paint by Imagination Crafts and some details with a white gel pen. 
The Butterfly was stamped and heat embossed with Silver onto vellum and cut out with the die. The second part of the sentiment was also embossed with silver onto a strip of vellum, which I wrapped around the coloured panel. The large font on was created with an Alphabet die set from The Works, which I cut out from white card and heat embossed it with the Silver powder. 
I then cut two panels, one from vellum and one from patterned pink paper from my stash to measure 4 3/4 x 6 3/4 inches. I then adhered the vellum panel underneath the main panel and added the pink paper to a 5 x 7 Kraft card base. I then added the main panel using 3D foam and added the die cut butterfly. I finished the card with some pearls in different sizes. 
I hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.

Enjoy Your Special Day


Hi, today I have a quick card to share with you that uses the 'Forest Friends' stamp set from Bo Bunny and the Acorn is from Hobby Art's Forest Friends stamp set.
I stamped the images with Black Gina K Amalgam Ink and coloured the images with Copic Markers. I also used a 'Dark Sepia' Polychromos pencil to add fur details to the Bunny and White Gel Pen Highlights. I then cut around the images leaving a thin white border.
I then cut a square panel from Kraft card stock and embossed it with a Provo Craft Wood Effect Embossing Folder. I then brought out the embossing some more with some 'Walnut Stain' Distress Ink. I used a Spellbinders circle die to cut out the centre of the panel and added 3D Foam tape to the back of the Kraft Card and attached to a square piece of Vellum.
I used 'Peeled Paint', Cracked Pistachio' and 'Wilted Violet' Distress Oxide to colour a square of White card stock, which doesn't show up properly in the photo. I then added the Kraft card panel on top of the Oxide coloured card and attached this to a 6 x 6 Kraft card base.
I stamped the sentiment which is also from Hobby Art with Versamark Ink onto a small Kraft card circle and Heat Embossed with Silver Powder. I then attached this into the middle of the card and added the images around it using 3D Foam. I added some Glossy Accents to the Acorns and some purple beads and pale green gems to finish.
I hope you like this card and thanks for stopping by.

Happiest Of Birthdays


Hello, today I have a card to share with you that uses the Sketched Flowers clear stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.
I started by stamping the large floral image with Versamark Ink onto white card stock and Heat Embossed with Ranger Gold Powder. I then stamped and embossed a few more of the flowers and leaves to fill out the image. I then painted the image with Distress Oxides in 'Peeled Paint, Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet, Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick and Faded Jeans. I also added some Oxide splatters to the background, along with some splatters of 'Gold Starlights' Paint by Imagination Crafts. I finished the main panel with some White Gel pen details and a Gold Embossed sentiment Vellum strip.
The background was created using the Distress Oxides and Starlight Paint. I then added a Vellum panel between the background panel and image panel, which was raised with 3D Foam tape. I then added this onto a 5 x 7 card base and finished the card with some Buttons Galore and More Sparkletz in 'Mermaid'.
I hope you like this card and thanks for stopping by.
